best place for sunrise and sunset

Visited the place recently. its real thrill for Trekkers. One must travel by jeep upto the shooting point and then trek the remaining part of the hill, people here are talking about the sunset from the point but i would suggest not to miss the sunrise, you will have to stay in tents and climb up the hill early in the morning till the the point but its worth all the effort. and the stay in campsite was awesome mind pleasing atmosphere.

Blended with Nature

Kodachadri is around 420km from Bangalore City and is popular trekking spot for travel freaks. This is the longest trek that I've done so far and it was a really good experience. The trek is 13 km in one direction with the Hidlumane waterfalls on the way. The water at the falls was really cold but I just couldn't resist myself and had a really good time taking bath and having fun. There is a temple below the top after which the trek to the top is around 2 km. The vastness of the western Ghats is a beautiful picture. We spent around 2 hours at the peak enjoying the beauty of the Ghats. Definitely worth another visit maybe during the monsoons next time.

Great Trekking Experience

Loved the trekking experience at Kodachadri. Don't miss the charming Hidlumane falls on the way. It's worth waiting for the sunset at the peak point.
